Top Review by Lennie

This is the first time I have ever assigned a rating here below three stars, but unfortunately this recipe rates very low in my book. The directions are clear, well-written and easy to follow, and that is why I assigned this two stars rather than just one. I followed them exactly. The mixture was hard to press into the pan, as it starts to set up almost immediately. But I got it levelled into the 13x9 pan, melted the chocolate and spread it over top, then let it sit at room temperature rather than in the fridge, because I didn't want it to go too hard. I needn't have bothered! This is as hard as a rock! With difficulty, I managed to crack a piece out with my chef's knife; nothing else would cut this. And it's so hard that you could honestly break a tooth on it; even if I could somehow get this into squares, I would be afraid to serve it to anyone. I hate to waste food, but I don't think I can salvage this.
